A small duplex in the heart of Alfama
Located in the heart of Alfama, one of the city districts that has least changed since the 17th century, not having suffered the consequences of the 1755 earthquake, the Electrico apartment is named after the famous tram No. 28, which passes close by. From this charming duplex apartment, you can easily observe everyday street life and the tram going back and forth, so typical of Lisbon. You will also be close to the São Vicente church.
In the vicinity there are numerous taverns, traditional restaurants and Fado houses, but also grocery stores and all kinds of old Lisbon stores.The apartment:
The building in which the Electrico apartment is located is an old building completely restored. Tastefully decorated, this apartment combines traditional and modern, where wood flooring fits-in perfectly with the stonework. The apartment is small, with a 35 m2 area and occupies both the ground and first floor of the building. You enter directly into the dining room level. The kitchen corner is modern and has all the appliances needed to make your meals. On this same level is the bathroom, with a large shower, modern sink, and separate toilet.
A narrow wooden staircase leads you upstairs where there is a small living room with a sofa that can serve as a bed for a child (no additional charge), a television, a modern fireplace and storage space. Comfortably seated on the puff-sofa next to the big window, perched above it all, you can watch and enjoy the street life as if you were a part of it too.
On a slightly lower level, you will find the small bedroom open to living room, where there is a double bed.
In winter, you can use individual electric heaters.
Ready yourself for a pleasant stay in a historic atmosphere, just steps away from the city's tourist sights.
This apartment does not have private parking; however, you will find public parking within 300 meters.
